17 Weeks


Today I noticed that when I reach for something while I’m sitting, I can really feel the baby. It feels like a tight little ball at the base of my stomach, which is kind of cool and weird at the same time. I’m still sleeping 9 hours a night and if I get less than that, I have to nap during the day. I’ve always needed about 8 hours of sleep a night, though, so it’s not too big of a change. If everything works out well next week, we’ll know if the baby is a boy or a girl! I can’t wait!


  • Exciting that you can feel the baby! Also exciting: that dress! Love it!

    • Thanks Catherine! It’s from the Target maternity section and is the first piece of maternity clothing that I’ve bought. I think I’ll be going to Target a lot for that– their clothes are so cute and affordable!

  • I also love that dress! Side note, only you would look like you still have abs with a pregnant belly! haha.

    • Thanks Stephie! Next time I’m in Alexandria, we should go shopping so that you can help me find more clothes :)

      • Of course!! Let me know when you’ll be back in town :)
